Does A use Subjunctive Mood? Do we have to use subjunctive mood in the clause "on condition that..."?

adelishakk wrote:hi ron,
I understand that you have to use the command subjunctive for the bossy verb ' condition'.
however condition is the object of the preposition here . i.e on conditions, hence a noun. so how does the subjunctive apply here ?

this point is why "having" and "naming" refer to "officers" in D and E and D and E are wrong.
is my thinking correct? please, confirm
this point is hard.

"the attempt at gmat can bring good results" is good
"my attempt at gmat can bring good results" is good
"my trying at gmat can bring good results" is not acceptable.
if noun dose not exists, we have to use "doing of" to say about a general action. for example:
learning of gmat is good for any one.
question: can we use "doing" without "of " here.
"learning gmat is good for any one" is acceptable or not. is there any difference between 2 above sentences.
when a noun exists, we still have to use "doing" to show the action of specific person. for example
I learn gmat by trying to find the meaning distortion.
in this case, noun "attempt" exist, but we use "doing, trying" to show the action of specific person. we do not use "my attempt" because this use is wordy.
Pls, answer/confirm my quesiton/idea above. Thank you
